Washington - In conjunction with Representative Cynthia McKinney, the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, continues its performing arts summer camp at Georgia Perimeter College-Clarkston Campus through Friday, August 11, 2000. Closing ceremonies will be held Friday, August 11, 2000, from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.

"This is the beginning of a dream come true to carry on the legacy of Tupac's devotion to young, gifted Black artists," said Afeni Shakur, mother of the slain musician, actor, and writer Tupac Shakur.

The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation Summer Artistic Camp 2000 was created for young, gifted Black artists to get an introduction into performing arts through networking and training with established artists. Workshops have been held concerning hip hop history, theatrical production and direction, peer leadership, as well as the development of urban life skills.

The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, Inc. was established in 1997 to carry on Tupac's creative legacy and social vision. The Foundation provides opportunities for artistic youth to pursue their creative and artistic endeavors.

"I'm always happy to be involved with the Shakur Foundation and our shared interests in our children," said McKinney. "Their summer camp is a great way for young artists to get a heads-up on what may turn out to be a promising career," she concluded.
